Pictures only tell so much.

I admit, it will take us longer to spread than you, but mine will be smoother!

I still beg to differ on the smoothness. I have laid by hand for many years before getting into this industry and I tell you what. I could never lay as good and even layer of mulch as this truck can. "If the operator has it tuned in correctly of course"

Ahhhhhh, there's the key words.

Haven't seen many around here that know how to do that.

Of course, I haven't seen many around here, period!

I second the blower truck.

I did 50 yards last year and I'll tell ya, that was a LOT of mulch to move with wheelbarrows and spade forks.

Oh, and blower trucks are smoother than by hand around these parts any day of the week.
